How Long Can You Finance An ATV?
You can finance an ATV for as little as 6 months or up to 7 years.
The most common finance is between 3 and 6 years for an ATV or side by side.
- 3 years = 36 months
- 4 years = 48 months
- 5 years = 60 months
- 6 years = 72 months
- 7 years = 84 months
Sales Tax For ATVs?
Every state has a sales tax on ATVs, but the way it’s calculated is different for each state.
Some states have you register your ATV and charge you a yearly fee(s).
Other states treat it like buying a iPad and only charge you once, but the fee is much higher.
Either way, you’ll need to pay taxes on your ATV, even if you buy it out of state. The tax man always wins and always figures it out.
Dealer cost on ATVs can vary from 2% to 8%, but don’t expect to pay what the dealer pays.
Buying an ATV is not like buying a car.
We go over this and more here.
Do You Get A Better Deal If You Pay Cash?
Most dealership prefer you don’t pay in actual cash. Cash is messy, needs to be counted, and needs to be deposited securely at the bank.
Checks are fine, but won’t always get you a better deal.
Dealerships like financing, as many of them get kickbacks from local banks. Also, cash today vs the bank wiring the money the next morning is no different to the dealership. If anything, financing is an easier and cleaner way to get paid compared to checks and actual cash.
